Textbook Problem

The magnitude of vector A is 35.0 units and points in the direction 325° counterclockwise from the positive x-axis. Calculate the x- and y-components of this vector.

To determine
The x and y components of vector (A) .


Given Info: The magnitude of vector (A) is 35units directed at 325° counterclockwise.


The vector representation is depicted below,

Formula to calculate the x component of the vector is,


  • Ax is the x-component of resultant vector
  • A is the resultant displacement
  • θ is angle

Substitute 35units for A , 35° for θ to find Ax .


Thus, the x component of the vector (Ax) is 28.7units .

The y component of the vector (Ay)
